If you know what you're doing afterward, in order to format your hard drive simply click the start button, click run and type cmd and hit eneter. Then enter "format C: /fs:ntfs" without the quotation marks. Follow the prompts.

yes, you will need to purchase a retail copy of windows xp, or windows 7. now.. of course you will also need to locate and download all your drivers for the sounds CD-ROM and Ethernet, wireless and motherboard chip sets... however if you can't get it to re-format than you have no choice but ti use a retail copy of windows and I'd recommend erasing the c:\ partition again with the retail windows disc.

I have a buffalo external drive. The last time it works is on my auntie's mac laptop, message prompt that i have to reformat the disk. It made me think that files are corrupted. I remove it hoping that...


If the Buffalo had been formatted on a MAC their file format is HPFS and is not compatible with Windows. To be able to exchange data between the Mac and Windows the Buffalo external drive needs to be formatted on Windows XP in FAT 32 (not NTFS). Then the Mac can read and write data on this external drive as well as Windows XP.

Best possible solution put back your 40GB and try to get an external casing for your 320GB to see if it works.And try windows on NTFS instead of FPTS, so reformat your 320GB and install the Windows XP again.
I hope this solution is helpful.

Computer Shuts Down By Itself


It sounds like the heads that read your hard drive are deteriorating. If you have data that you need on the hard drive hook it up as a slave drive to another computer and save your data now. Because eventually you will no longer be able to access any data on the drive. Then you will have to send it to one of those data recovery places that use clean rooms to recover your data. That will be very expensive.

Or you might have a bad sector in bios. In that case, I am not sure what to do.
